Darnall, Sikes, Gardes & Frederick’s spacious River Ranch office was the site of its Meet the Artist reception for the Art for All Seasons’ fall exhibit, featuring the artwork of Bonnie Camos, Tina Trahan and Kate Ferry. As guests leisurely sipped wine and nibbled cheeses, they perused the halls to view Camos’ unique Head Study and Spirit series composed of encaustic, wood, glass and copper; Trahan’s beautiful violin, wine bottles and Baroque Scrolls, and Ferry’s vibrant fish, guinea hens and Dancer with Headdress. During the reception, the charming artists mingled with art lovers and described the inspirations for their paintings. Art for All Seasons is a program designed by DSG&F to showcase the works of local artists in its workspace, with exhibits changing every three months through coordinator Peggy Wagner. Attending the fall reception were John Mouton and his son, Jake, David Strother and his wife, Susan Daigle, and Scott and Dianne Bailey and photographer Sonny Monteleone.
